“Worst Estate Agents for us”


written by on 21/12/2022

This is one of the worst estate agents that we have dealt with.

BE WARNED! Please watch the words on the contract - and think before you sign - place performance clauses even if you are a risk taker.

We put our house on sale, and then found the performance of the agents were poor. They pushed us to sell our house at £35,000 (15%) below the market value during a good market. They kept us hanging for months whereas houses would sell in 2 weeks in our estate.

We changed from Slater Hogg and Howison to a new agent. Within a week our house was sold a a little above the market value.

We had to fight back through the Property Ombudsman to win back a compensation. However it took a long time for us to get this through and we lost the premium that we could have received when the housing market was better during the summer months.

We would never recommend Slater Hogg & Howison to anyone because we feel they were sending some fake customers, trying to work against the our (sellers) benefit, very awkward behaviours except for 1 individual in the office, threatening attitude to name a few significant ones.

It was only in the aftermath we realised that a number of our people had similar experiences due to which they have chucked out Slater Hogg and Howison from their list of potential estate agents, and thus their parent company Countrywide PLC, who are even worse when issues are escalated.
